Dr. Melanie Sturgeon is the co-founder and President of the Arizona Women’s History Alliance (AWHA), a 501(c)3 whose primary goal is to aid in the expansion of Arizona women’s history and education, including the promotion of new research and writing. We increase public awareness of the experiences and contributions of Arizona women who collectively represent Arizona’s rich and diversified racial, ethnic, cultural, social, economic and political history. Melanie retired three years ago as the State Archivist and Director of the Arizona State Archives and Records Management Branch of the Arizona State Library where she served for 16 years. In June 2018 she stepped down after 12 years as the Executive Chair of the Arizona Women’s Hall of Fame. She has an MA and Ph.D. in history from Arizona State University.

Being in service to her community is a source of pride for Twanna, but she also aspires to make a deeper change in the lives of those who strive to do better for themselves and their families. Twanna contributes to many initiatives outside of United Food Bank with this goal in mind, advocating for children, the homeless, Native populations and local farmers to name a few.

Founding members—Stephanie Sadownik, Erica Glenn, Kalani Pickhart, and Jenny Irish, brought together colleagues from their perspective fields. Participants were then placed in creative groups to interface on matters concerning women. These conversations served as the basis of their collaborative output in the form of art song, or poetry set to music.
